Harlan man nominated for artisan honor

Posted: Updated:

HARLAN, Ky. (AP) -- Wallins Creek resident Donald Honeycutt is a master woodcrafter winning several awards for his work.

Beginning his art approximately 15 years ago, Honeycutt said he has no formal training with the scroll saw. He said one day he "just found he had a talent for woodcrafting."

A former truck driver, Honeycutt said he began that career at the age of 21 and worked in that area until he retired.

Winning blue ribbons for his work at the annual Harlan County Shriners' Horse Show and Pine Mountain Settlement School events, Honeycutt also won the Master of Craftsmanship at the 2005 Festival of the Mountain Masters and an Honorable Mention award in 2011.

Recently, he was nominated to be inducted into the National Hall of Fame for Mountain Artisans.
